BOCA RUDETON: No, That’s Not A Parking Space In Front Of Publix


Despite Popular Belief, Cars Valued At More Than $80,000 Do Not Have Special Publix Parking Privileges.

This Range Rover was not supposed to be parked in front of the Publix at Delray Market Place. It is our latest Boca Rudeton™ feature. (


DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Don’t shoot the messenger, but it’s time to dispel a common misconception among drivers of cars valued at more than $80,000 in and around South Palm Beach County. Here we go…

No, the front of Publix is not reserved for you because you don’t want to wait — or park — in an actual parking spot just 20 feet away. The latest confused person is the focus of our latest Boca Rudeton™ entry — a Range Rover parked directly in front of the Publix at Delray Market Place.

Never mind that this is exactly where people walk to get in and out of the parking lot. Never mind that senior citizens may be using this area for walkers, wheelchairs, and assistive devices. And never mind that the actual parking lot — roughly 20 feet away — is 75 percent empty. When you drive a Range Rover, it turns out you are allowed to park wherever you want to park! And at the Publix at Delray Market Place for a Range Rover with Florida tag 97KJC, that preferred parking space is apparently directly in front of the store.

When you a drive this Range Rover, you apparently get to park wherever you’d like — even directly in front of Publix at Delray Market Place. (

A staffer saw the vehicle mid-day Sunday — and noted a woman inside focused on her phone, not on the cars attempting to navigate around her. She was parked in the location for roughly 15 minutes. Even if she was waiting for someone inside, there was nothing preventing her from parking, watching, and waiting. People who aren’t driving Range Rovers do this all the time.

Lady in a white Range Rover with Florida Tag 97KJC, you are our latest Boca Rudeton™ winner! We would get you a prize, but we’re afraid that you would block the entrance to the operations center.
